Sources tell TSN the Columbus Blues Jackets, as is their right, put Marchant on waivers on Saturday, which means he'll either clear by noon Monday or be selected by another team. And the betting is this time, unlike last week when he was put on waivers for the first time, Marchant will be claimed. Teams are permitted to put a player who has cleared waivers on waivers again without ever having sent that player to the minor leagues and that is what Columbus is doing. Columbus had been trying to trade Marchant, but that was made difficult as Marchant has a no-trade clause in his contract.
